confusing. >> must have been a really interesting class. >>> it is a question posed by candidate ronald reagan. over three decades ago. >> are you better off than you were four years ago? >> and it's a message the candidates are still actually using today. >> the president has no record to run on. in fact, every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say that you are better off today than you were four years ago, except for jimmy carter and for president barack obama. >> if people think they're better off, i would say, well, take a look at the numbers when it comes to median household income, which is down every year for the last four years. >> the obama administration, however, is taking the other side. >> you want to know whether we're better off. i got a little bumper sticker for you. osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive! >> bloomberg business week took a look at that very question in this week's election issue asking about the price of your food, the value of your home and your paycheck. staff writer took the que
ronald reagan after he lost? he said that mondale failed to land his knockout. not mondale is a liar and a horrible person. >> steve: they took the high road. >> gretchen: it's interesting because the president did say that he made a gaffe, that he wasn't his best performance, but put his other surrogates out there to call mitt romney as liar and he alluded to that himself on the stump. did that stick or did that further irritate voters who hadn't made up their mind yet? that's the big question in some these polls. was it solely the debate performance of mitt romney or was it the reaction as well by the obama camp that turned off voters as we're look? >> steve: the next debate is coming up on thursday. >> brian: i think it's going to be huge. >> steve: i do, too. because it will be the ohm time we'll get to see paul ryan and joe biden. joe biden being sequestered. he's out of commission for six days. meanwhile, paul ryan taking on reporters. here is an exchange with a local guy in detroit from the abc affiliate in flint. >> have a gun problem. this country has a crime problem. not a
a lot of duress to make up lost ground. >> jack kennedy increased growth. ronald reagan -- >> now you're jack kennedy. >> a battle of minds. congressman ryan and vice president widen go head to head in the first and only vice presidential decade. we dig into the facts and fiction ahead. >> malarkey complaining, laughless, shirtless, just a few of the top search items on google during last night's debate. we have more on the debate coming up this hour. >> shirtless. >> shirtless what, could be better than that. >> welcome back to "early start." >> it's friday, october 12th. there was plenty of passion and paul ryan and joe biden each got in a zinger or two but no knockout last night in the vice presidential debate. nobody had a bad night and nobody was too polite, that's to be sure. joe biden was the aggressor and paul ryan looking like the calm, collected counterpuncher. >> and here's how america scored it. a cnn orc poll taken right after the debate showed 48% of the voters who watched thought ryan won and 44% favored pieden. that's a statistical tie. senior congressional corresponde
, but, ron, i want you to talk a little bit about this because this is ronald reagan when he blew his first debate against walter mondale. this happened back in 1984. he seemed confused. some people, you know, thought elderly and confused. he really came back with -- in the second debate. here's what he said. >> and i want you to know that also i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> ron, does biden need to throw one of those at ryan there? i mean, these guys are not the same age. >> game, set, match in 1984. no, it's interesting. this is the widest age gap we've had in a vice presidential debate. on the other hand, what's interesting, suzanne, you know, they both are sort of unusually early starting politicians. biden was elected to the senate at 29. paul ryan to the house at 28. they both kind of made their way in washington, but i think the contrast between them will be enormous. joe biden can't reverse this race by himself. the race has changed, i think, fundamentally. you had a slice
revenue. ronald reagan, six years during his tax reform we went from $600 billion to $1 trillion worth of revenue. that's a 67% increase. even george bush's tax cuts, in 2003, federal revenue was a little under $1.8 trillion. before the housing vote, $2.5 trillion. that's a 42% increase in revenue to the federal government. lowering marginal tax rates is incentivizing. >> i hear you on that. what people are taking exception to is without details, as a taxpayer, of what's on the table and what's off the table, it's a very easy way to throw out numbers without necessarily being having to be responsible for the math working out. i mean i thought martha raddatz did a very good job on this. she's sort of like you're not again going to give specifics. and chris wallace -- >> you are giving specifics as you're giving directions to congress. this is what ceos do. listen, as you design this, make sure that people making $200,000 will not have their tax burden lowered. but we're going to lower their marginal tax rate because that produces inseverives for them to create jobs. for people making le
